Estonian Air has started offering DVD players to rent along with a choice of 15 films and TV comedy shows on flights lasting more than 100 minutes aboard its four Boeing 737 Classics.
Rental of a DVD player and a film costs EEK60 (EUR4). Passengers can use their own ear-phones or buy a set for a further EEK15. The DVDs are supplied by local video rental company Videoplanet.
“Test flights, especially charter services, have provided us with a positive feedback regarding on-board video rental,” comments Gunnar Mägi, the airline’s development director. "We have especially noticed high demand for movies for children and together with Videoplanet hope to expand the selection even further."
